Switzerland
I'm an ongoing scientific illustrator studying Scientific Visualization at the ZHdK in Zurich and I'm currently in my second year of studies after I studied Biology for five semesters at the UZH in Zurich. Though I study and live most of the week in a flat in Zurich with my roomies, I spend most of my weekends and holidays at home in Zernez in the middle of the Engadin valley.

My interests are biology, especially zoology, paleontology and evolution, since I always loved to know about nature and it's inhabitants. I'm also interested in medicine, history (Vikings, Germans, Romans, Rhaetians and other ancient cultures), enviromental science and geoscience ranging from Earth to extraplanetar systems. I also keep pets (birds, fish, amphibians), go hunt, hike and dive. It's safe to say that I got a very vast field of interests.
One of my other great passions besides of science are sci-fi and gaming, meaning that I'm a sucker for the Aliens (AvP) and the Halo franchise. Though I tend to draw a lot of fanart in my spare time, I'm not one of those weird fangirls. I'm quite a reasonable fan.
If you look at my gallery, you'll mostly find either scientific stuff like paleontology or zoology I do at the university or sci-fi and fanart I do in my spare time :)

My mother tongue is Rumansh but I speak German fluently as well and I'm quite good with English. I also understand a good part from French and Italian and to a certain degree Spanish. As you see, communication shouldn't be a problem if you do want to speak about my art. Comments of any kind are welcomed! :D

Fair use: You are free to spread my art and show it wherever you want, as long as you're not selling or making profit with it. However I'd then like you to credit me for it by linking to my profile or at least mention my name. Ask me first, if you want to use parts of my art for your own non-profit artistic projects (collage). Do not trace my art, use my art as a base, remove my signature from my art or pretend it to be your own art.
Interests
Damn, this probably sounds cheesy as fuck but when I joined DA, I'd never have imagined to ever have 500 watchers. That's really awesome, so thank you so much!!! :D
Guess it'll take another eight years to reach a 1000? :lol:

Also sorry for my lack of activity here but lately I've had a lot of commissions to do, along with my search for an internship. I barely had time to answer the comments here. Still, I'll try to be more active soon! I got a ton of Halo sketches as well as other interesting scientific works to present, as soon as I was able to edit them in photoshop =)

Until I'm back, let me suggest a few good Halo comics some friends of mine did/are doing. That way you won't get too bored ;)

First we got :iconseg0lene:s comic "Halo Union" that's about a Marine and a Sangheili being forced to team up together in order to survive in the abandoned New Mombasa. It's already sporting over 100 pages, so if you got some time to catch up with the story, go check it out from the start in this folder! seg0lene.deviantart.com/galler…

Next we got a collaboration comic done between :iconaubreycloud: who's managing the sites on his account and :iconshades-of-stl: who's responsible for the main artwork. The comic is called "Aeolian Hope" and good for people who don't want to have to read a lot of pages in order to be up to date. The comic got over 20 pages now but is just as good as Halo Union, revolving around the everyday struggles and fights of Marines and ODSTs during the Covenant war. Check it out! aubreycloud.deviantart.com/gal…

Have fun with their works until I'm back and maybe consider giving them a bit support by watching their works! :D

Hi there I'm a recent Co-Founder for the Mass-Halo Group, I was wondering if you were interested in becoming a Contributor due to your past submissions to this group. Right now I'm just trying to keep the group alive. Just reply back if you're interested.:) (Smile)

Well I'm not really experienced with the Mass Effect franchise, nor do I really follow it's related art but I regularly keep track of any Halo fanart, so I could indeed contribute those to the group, if you want to.

That's fine, doesn't have to be both, just one related fanart is good enough. I'll send an invite when I can. Thank you.

In that case I guess I'll be able to help. I know a lot of undiscovered fanarts that may be interesting to be featured in the group.
